Samsung Galaxy S7 Active size comparison: here's how the rugged champ measures up

Yesterday, all fans of rugged phones probably screamed with happiness when the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Active became official. Improving the spectacular foundation the Galaxy S7 already built, the newest addition to the lineup is a rugged phone to be reckoned with.

With a sturdy rugged body, shatter-proof display, and IP68 dust- and water-resistance, the S7 Active is a tough nut to crack, but it has paid the price. See, it's not a particularly beautiful device, as its heavy-duty design has required a lot of sacrifices. 

At 9.9mm, it trumps the Galaxy S7's 7.9mm body, of course, the 7.7mm S7 edge is also way thinner. That 4,000mAh battery is certainly taking its toll...

So, how does the S7 active stack up against some of the more popular devices at the moment? Check out right below!

Does it allow for charging pads? I also wonder how long that battery last for. I rather a thicker phone if the battery is larger and will allow for a few extra hours of usage. I have replaced the battery in my iPhone 5S less than a year ago, and it still has a pretty short life. If I take my motorcycle out, put the phone in the cradle (100% charged), and turn on Waze, the phone is dead within two hours.
